Just got back from seeing Catching Fire - SPOILER FREE.
I don’t even know what to write.. It surpassed ALL my expectations and blew me away! They took so many lines directly from the book! Not to mention they hardly left anything out.. this movie had EVERYTHING. The CGI was so much better this time around, fucking fantastic. The actors and actresses were soooooooo flawless. I love, love, loVED Finnick and Johanna! Omg. Plus the beautiful beautiful Everlark moments. So many freaking feels (especially at a certain train moment & beach moment). 90% of this movie I spent on the EDGE of my seat. So well done.. so freaking well done. I was about 30mins into the damn movie when I turned to my boyfriend and said I need to see this again.. like now- and the movie wasn’t even half over yet <3 Plus the movie was so much more real this time.. I mean the first one was dark, but this one is so much darker. The times that you tear up in this film.. ahhhhh
Thank you Francis Lawrence and the rest of the cast and crew! You people deserve a standing ovation. This movie was one of the greatest movies I’ve seen in a long time. I’ll be counting down the minutes till Thursday when I can watch it all again!
Also- Subway was so awesome with the VIP treatment and gift cards! Shout out to Subway “where the victors eat” lmao
Strange things did happen here.. No stranger would it be..
If we met up at midnight in the hanging tree. (x)
"What I need is the dandelion in the spring. The bright yellow that means rebirth instead of destruction. The promise that life can go on, no matter how bad our losses. That it can be good again.”
Just got this done today! This was taken right after it was done- hence the redness and darkness of the dandelion!
Peeta and I sit on the damp sand, facing away from each other, my right shoulder and hip pressed against his. I watch the water as he watches the jungle, which is better for me. I’m still haunted by the voices of the jabberjays, which unfortunately the insects can’t drown out. After a while I rest my head against his shoulder. Feel his hand caress my hair.
He offered me sugar and wanted to know all my secrets,
The piercing shriek cuts me off. It’s another voice, not Prim’s, maybe a young woman’s. I don’t recognize it. But the effect on Finnick is instantaneous. The color vanishes from his face and I can actually see his pupils dilate in fear. “Finnick, wait!” I say, reaching out to reassure him, but he’s bolted away. Gone off in pursuit of the victim, as mindlessly as I pursued Prim.
Only then does he seem to notice our expressions,
the way we’re wrapped around each other.
Whatever it takes to break you.
For a moment we’re frozen, sizing each other up, our weapons, our skill.
Then Finnick suddenly grins. “Lucky thing we’re allies. Right?”
A lot of nights on the train, for instance,
Fangs bared, hackles raised, claws shooting out like switchblades.
This is no place for a girl on fire.
